Oh, Càndid: you won’t stop till you get hurt. A probing documentary about the singer of the riot-punk group Autodestrucció (from Hostalric) in full-blown existential crisis. The dichotomy between public and private, punk and family, wacky dust and gin and tonics, traditions and breakups.

Oh, Càndid: you won't stop till you get hurt. Càndid is the singer in a band from Hostalric: Autodestrucció. Picture NOFX lost in Montseny with a bag of uppers. Càndid is also a reveler with no safety valve, a runaway bull, a night owl that's drawn to the criminal underworld, and a geezer that sings in a wheelchair with a policeman's cap firmly perched on his head. But Un lloc on caure mort isn't a simple freak-woz-here, but a voyeuristic film that orbits the narcotic appetite of a thirty-something year old with all guns blazing. Càndid's got your number. Càndid gets you hooked, musing about how to close his coke wrap, counting gin & tonics and blasting out hits like "Rastres de farlopa" or "A la puta merda tot" and suddenly launches into a reflection on his existential crisis; on betraying his principles ("we are fucking traitors to ourselves") and the belligerence ("one day you wake up and you're one of them") and honesty ("I can't be too honest") and even tradition ("perhaps traditions aren't so wrong"). Which is the true Càndid? The aberrant singer or a father's son and a son's father? A film that discloses the dichotomy between public and private, punk and family, doubts and certainties, blow and blows, traditions and breakups... like none before it.
